Our Souls at Night

Synopsis: In Holt, a small Colorado town, Addie Moore (Jane Fonda) pays an unexpected visit to a neighbor, Louis Waters (Robert Redford). Her husband died years ago, as did his wife, and in such a small town they'd been neighbors for decades, but had little contact. Their children (Matthias Schoenaerts and Judy Greer) live far away and they are all alone in their big houses. Addie seeks to establish a connection, and make the most of the rest of the time they have.

- What...


This is the living room.

- And, uh...

- Oh.

Bigger house than I thought, more rooms.

It's been a good house for us.

How long have you lived here?

- 48 years.

- 48 years?

That's a long time.

Would you like to see the upstairs?


So this was Connie's room.

And this was Gene's room.

And the bathroom.

And, um...

This is where we always slept.

I'm sorry about the "we."

Oh, I know what you mean.

You getting in?


Awfully quiet, Louis.

Yeah, well...

I was just thinking how strange

this all seems.

Maybe it wasn't such a good idea?

Maybe... Maybe it could be.


Yeah, maybe it is.

You know what else I was thinking?

Are you still awake?
